I stepped out onto the driveway to have a smoke with my wife I noticed what looked like to planes very close together. as i watched one stood still the other moved straight toward us. This is very common since i live right under a flight pattern. I continued to watch it while conversing with my wife and noticed the second light hadn't deviated from its position, nor did it have the usual blinking lights we see on aircraft. I continued to watch it as 3 more aircraft past the point and moved by and i asked my wife to observe it. We continued to watch it and it did not move. I figured it was likely a planet so i wanted to check it out with my binoculars. I had my wife continue to watch it while i went and retrieved the binoculars. I returned and focused on the object and when i first focused it i saw what appeared to by a pattern of lights like this ".....", i then gave my wife the binoculars and she observed it for a while. She stated that is looked like a star. My mother had just came over and she commented that it was the "North star". i continued to observe it further, this time it was spherical, distant and not moving. At this point i wrote it off as a planet and went back in side. about a minute later i grabbed some garbage and went out to the trash. Again i looked up and this time there was absolutely nothing in the sky. My conclusion is there would be no way that a star or other planetary body could move across the horizon that fast. It was the brightest object i could see in the sky at the time and observing it with and without the binoculars i saw no movement whatsoever, nor any additional lights after the first observance.
